Re: ROH Final Battle 2012 - NYC, Dec 16 (DOOMSDAY~!)
Holy shit cablegeddon shows up and in three or four posts knocks nevereveragainu right off the top of the "shittiest posters in OW" list.
Have you ever climbed a ladder in your life? Seriously, have you? You do not sprint up a ladder unless you want it to tip over. Holy fuck. This is the dumbest thing I've probably ever seen in this board. And that is saying quite a bit. I seriously cannot believe this shit. Like, yeah, sometimes wrestlers climb ladders inexplicably slowly, fine, when it's blatant I don't like it either. But you try setting up a ladder inside a wrestling ring and then climbing it as fast as you seem to want people to climb it. And then do that with fucked up knees. Jesus. Fuck off.
regarding the show as a whole: highly recommended if you suffer from insomnia. Watched the opener, thought it was okay but Elgin still isn't very well-rounded, the Truth stuff was lame and I'd be ready for him to fuck off if I still watched ROH regularly. Then the Lethal match came on and I fell asleep. I kept waking up and rewinding it, trying to sit through it but eventually I just decided it wasn't worth it and just slept and woke up at some point during Evans/Nana. Which was meh. Didn't really care.
Then there was a WGTT match and you know how I felt about that. Not that I want to be like "I told you so" but come on, I fucking told you all so 20 months ago when they won the tag titles after not having a single good match with anyone, and now it appears they might be done, two years too late.
Then I got angry at myself for watching a WGTT match so I gave up on it for a few days and then decided I should at least watch the ladder match. So I tried to find it and ended up watching the last couple minutes of the tag match, which was lame. Briscoes being champs again is an embarrassment. Seriously. Whoever is booking this shit should be ashamed. I just red repped a bunch of people who said positive things about the Briscoes and that made me feel a little better. I'm kind of a child, you don't need to tell me.
As for the ladder match, it was fun. Reminded me of the first one, with a less hot crowd and two less guys, which meant that the setup times for the spots were increased. Whatever, that's to be expected for a singles match. They got the hate across to some extent. Nowhere near their Steen Wolf match, but a fun time with a pretty cool finish.
This is the other wrestling section. It's still fake to us.
